Monday, March 27, Florida Housing will host the Statewide Supportive Housing Workgroup, consisting of state agency leadership. This Workgroup has been identified as a group of key policy makers for the purpose of developing a statewide Action Plan that will bring together State Agencies for the purpose of identifying efficiencies, improving existing efforts, and charting a course of future collaboration and coordination.
The webinar registration information has been posted to the webpage https://www.floridahousing.org/programs/special-needs-housing-overview. An agenda and materials will be posted prior to the workshop. A listserv will be sent when this information is available.
In 2022, the Florida Supportive Housing Coalition hosted a Policy Day in Tallahassee. Representatives from the Executive Office of the Governor, multiple State Agencies, and other key stakeholders gathered to discuss supportive housing and the households served. The group discussed the need to increase production of housing units for persons with special needs, how to improve access, coordination and funding for supportive services, and the importance of creating data-driven solutions that cross State Agencies and systems of care.
At this Policy Day, the Governor’s Office recommended establishing a statewide workgroup consisting of State Agency leadership to identify housing and supportive services policies and actions that can be implemented to best address the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors.
